Mary was nominated by the community for the twenty five years she dedicated to being a voluntary trustee of both the Pitstone Town Lands Charity and The Williamson Trust, the last seven years of which she served as Chairman.
Mrs Saintey was presented with her certificate and cheque at the Pitstone Annual Assembly on 13 May 2014 where she reminded everyone how lucky our village was to have two such charities when many other communities are not as fortunate.
A huge thank you to Mary, and the other trustees, from both the members of Pitstone Parish Council and all the residents who have had the pleasure of benefitting from the charities.
There are many people in our village that give up lots of their time to help other residents or community groups. If you know someone that deserves a special thank you, please send their details to the parish clerk so they can be considered for the 2015 award. The winner is presented with a framed certificate and cheque at the Annual Parish Assembly and is also entered into the AVDC Volunteer of the Year scheme.
